A day out at the Museum


On Sunday we went to the Museum for a walk around and see a few of Kaiden's favourite things...bubbles, bees, dinosaurs, fish and trains!

Felt food!!!


These are truely good enough to eat...hand-made from felt by me! Everytime I see the doughnuts I get hungry. I made a couple of each type to give away as presents and a set for Kaiden to cook with.

Talking babies...

Here's a little something I made for a neighbour's little boy who was born *ahem* back in June.
And a layout I started back at the Scrap with V retreat (back in March) which I finally added the finishing touches to the other day.

Tutu Bag


Despite sewing on the handles the wrong way - yes it is possible! I have finished my ballerina bag. I think it looks so cute - perfect for a little girl. Oh and I sewed a button on a shirt - it's out of my "to do" pile so it counts towards my tally for the year which now sits at 28. I'm about three months behind in my goal of completing one sewing project per week. It will take a huge effort to catch that up!

Crafty goodness!


On Thursday last week I was amazed to find a wonderful surprise on my desk when I arrived at work. This gorgeous, so terrifically boyish, fabric is a RAK from my friend and crafter-in-crime Nerida which she said she couldn't resist from TokyoMommy. It's just perfect, thanks N - it's going straight to the craft room!
Nerida was also generous in loaning me her little girl's apron pattern designed by The Apron Lady. Here's my final version, the half-reversible Little Flirty Skirty. Oh la la!

And I thought I'd better applique this pullover before a) winter was over b) Kaiden was no longer a size one. This time I used my sewing machine to applique so it didn't take as long.
